unquestionably the greatest problem democracy faces and using the restrictions on free speech, as the solution. the other issue that i think is so important to note here is that, you know, peter talked about these loopy individuals, but if you look at what citizens united actually did, it didn't have anything to do with the ability of foster freeze or all those other gop suger daddies to fund elections. the ability of corporations and unions to spend money. >> out of general treasury. >> long before citizens united individuals could advocate elections. montana's law doesn't do anything about. citizens united. huge corruption before citizens united. >> i think people make this argument and i think if you're looking at what happened post citizen united, alter the norms. the decision has altered the norms of conduct. they do matter. there is a reason when you look at the charts of these sorts of guys. yes, sheldon addison could have done it before and the thing that has changed in the intervening years. the other important point and the bizarre thing about the way this election is being

ammunition. the assault rifle he used would have been illegal under the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004. at least three members of the u.s. armed forces were wounded in the shooting. among the few things we know about james holmes are these. police say he is not cooperating with investigators besides telling them his apartment was booby trapped. he was in the process of a phd. we know nothing of his mendel state. the book you wrote about columbine it is a masterpiece. to start off the conversation, we find ourselves sometimes in the business of cable news having air time to fill with not that many facts to fill them with. one of the things that comes across in your book is that the story that we got about what happened in columbine and the perpetrators of columbine on the day and week and month and became all we knew was the facts wasn't true. what do we think we know that we didn't know and how did that happen? >> most people still believe that we know exactly what happened in columbine, what went on, that it was two loner outcasts as revenge for years of being bullied.

years ago. joe, tell us where you think we are. >> i don't think we should sacrifice the american worker. there are a number of ways to job train and escort people into work that we're just not doing. what happens a lot is you hear jobs, jobs, jobs, and you don't see anything happen. i don't see any job programs. do you? >> oh, job training programs. that's about it. >> do you? >> that's been the problem. there's been this job training consensus. there was job training money under clinton and the recovery act, but if you train people to have jobs and there are no jobs -- >> there's an "all dressed up and nowhere to go" potential. you train people for jobs and there's nowhere to go. >> i was doing this for 20 years. >> basically what? >> the job sector, working with disabled people, homeless gentlemen, homeless adults, disabled, as i say, and i've never seen a lack of commitment to the work force like i do now. >> by who? >> by the government, by officials. just turning on public employees for example. >> and you were a public employee before you were laid off. >> right. >> the iro

tell us that now is the time for the debate, i guess nothing will. >> weather is terrifying and incomprehensible. even today with all of our progress and technology and all the things on the earth we can bend to our industrial will a single storm can knock out power for more than 3 million people, as it did last week in d.c. and the surrounding states. the last century of modern life snuffed out in an instant. storms and wildfires come and go and summer heat waves come and go and our atmosphere does all kind of freaky things. but if you take a step back and survey the wreckage of the bizarre, extreme weather just this year, nearly impossible to avoid the conclusion that the planet is screaming out an obvious message. climate change is here, the wolf is at the door. hit 95 in new york city and 105 in washington, d.c. 107 degrees, 107 degrees in st. louis. at least 60 people have died due to this heat wave and this year alone we had a staggering record highs. look at this map. these are the places that reported record monthly highs in march and these are inrecord monthly highs for

mitt romney says this -- >> i want to restore to america the principals that made us the hope of the earth. >> he's not talking about the principle, one that has been preserved under barack obama and mitt romney has no interest in going back. this is the real reason that mitt romney doesn't want to do what his father did by releasing more returns. a society where the wealthy are bound to everyone else. his own taxes, from what we've seen are a snapshot of what they look like in which the wealthy have used their influence over the political parties and the party making apparatus to write rules to allow them to keep the government's hands off their cash. a world in which they've created a rapidly growing industry of tax lawyers and accountants who make a lot of money boring through the tax code like termites. it's not a character story. elites are subject to the norms of their time. this is about the relationship of our elites to the rest of their fellow citizens and the ways it has changed over the last half century. what a society looks like when it's incapable of forcing the most po

all of us. that's the power of all of us. that's the membership effect of american express. >>> good morning from new york, i'm chris hayes. president obama is going to aurora, colorado, today to visit with the victims of friday's theater shootings, their families and local officials. both president obama and mitt romney will return to the trail on monday with stops across the west coast. but i want to start with my story of the week. the taxes of the father. by week's end, it was getting harder and harder to find anyone democratic republican, pundit or operative who didn't think mitt romney should and ultimately would have to release more than two years of his tax returns. senate democrats are planning to introduce legislation this week raising dividends to 20% and now talking about letting all the bush tax cuts expire as part of a strategy to limit actual tax increases to people with annual incomes above $250,000. people like, well, mitt romney. and it also doesn't help that when george romney ran for president in 1968, he set a new precedent by turning over 12 years of t

taking little scraps that tell us nothing. a year or two years from now we are going to have a really complete picture of this guy. we are going to know exactly what he is like. even when they are dead there is a lot of stuff that will come out. we will have this picture. right now we are getting dots like this, tiny specks. and we are having the urge to put them together and draw a picture from them. you have dots here and here. the picture we come up with is probably wrong. three scraps of data out of 100,000 that is not going to work. >> and to me that gets to the kind of second conversation which is about politics. again, this is now part of the ritual which is so bizarre is that the second order conversation is about policy responses because mass shootings have happened with guns. and we have a country that has way more guns that other democracies for a bunch of other reasons which we can get into. when you are thinking about that, part of that in wrestling to get to why did this happen is one vision of this as essentially a natural disaster. people, there are horrible people in
